    If the beadwork is very loose, I don't think there is anyway of fixing it. Cleaning-you can use a soft cloth or a small soft brush and a small amount of water(just enough to loosen the dust) Hope this helps. :)

      by tlingitdena
      I have recently reconnected with my roots and am trying to learn the art of beadwork Tlingit style. I am way down in Louisiana and many of the classes I want to take are in Alaska, I am looking for books (or videos) as an alternative to get me started. Any suggestions? I have a fair number of patterns...
